NON will be the narrating voice behind composer Toru Takemitsu’s latest work “Beyond The Standard Vol.2” It will be released on October 24th.


“Beyond The Standard Vol.2” is a recording project by Italian conductor Andrea Battistoni and the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra. This work called “Geneology” is a work of a form in poetry chosen from the poetry book “Hadaka” by Tanigawa Shuntaro with the backing of the orchestra.


Comment from NON:


“I am deeply grateful to have the role of reading Shuntaro Tanigawa’s poem with music by Toru Takemitsu. Under the direction of Mr. Battistoni and the recording with the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, I felt tremendous tension, but it was a great opportunity to experience such beautiful performances and poetry.”
